I hope he finds a way to allow players from all countries to play, ┤cos this bull**** legislation in most european countries is killing people.

Re: Phil Galfond is launching Run It Once - Poker

Nicest guy around, must be one of the best guys to give this a try. This quote really made an impression on me:

"I want a fair, honest, transparent poker site that believes in the dream that I have lived.
I'm going to give it my best shot."
Phil

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Congrats, Phil, if anyone can make it happen you can. Considering where the player base is going to come from at first, the games will probably be very tough. It will be interesting to see how they go about advertising.

Well here's what we've all been wanting for a long time, someone respectable with players in mind giving a site an honest shot.

Anyone saving their 'one time' should pull it out for this, gl galfond

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

Makes sense, some guy who has no experience running a poker site, thinks he can make a better one then the ones that have been around since the beginning of online poker.

He has as good as good a chance at succeeding as Negraneu does at becoming a professional golfer.

Re: Phil Galfond to Start a Poker Site

He is smart, has integrity, and knows what a good poker site should be. The problem is, does he know how to get new players because without a constant stream of fresh new players the site dies. His success will be determined by how well his marketing team can get this site out there.
